What Wenger must do to Get Arsenal back on track

What Wenger must do to Get Arsenal back on track

The Reds welcome their Premier League rivals, who they beat to fourth place by just a single point last season after defeating the Gunners home and away, for a mouthwatering clash at Anfield.

Arsenal's season is already in a flimsy state as they take on Liverpool.

He will feature alongside Aaron Ramsey behind £50m signing Alexandre Lacazette, who has impressed thus far in his debut Premier League season.

The north London side are aiming to challenge for the Premier League title this season after coming up short and ending up fifth in the table last term.

Sanchez's availability for selection and potential return to the Gunners line up will be a huge boost for the club, who have suffered an indifferent start to the season. His ability to bomb forward and passing ability put him above Nathaniel Clyne and Trent Alexander-Arnold (for now).

Liverpool did the double over the Gunners past year. In midfield and defence however, lies the team's greatest weaknesses.

In defence the talismanic Laurent Koscielny returns, having served out an early season suspension following his sending off against Everton in the final game of 2016/17. Similar style to Matip in some ways, Koscielny has a similar problem insofar as he often has to make up for the mistakes of his defensive partner too.

Here's a look at where the intrigue will be across the 10 games. The Brazilian's Barcelona related "back injury" has kept him out so far this season, although it is expected to clear up on the evening of the transfer deadline. His passing ability has now been supplemented with heightened awareness and finishing - Klopp and FSG would do well to get his contract situation sorted quickly.

Hoffenheim arrived at Anfield with three central defenders and had to change system with three-quarters of the game remaining and after three Liverpool goals. For now, he edges out Mesut Ozil in this lineup.

However, Klopp confirmed that Philippe Coutinho is still not in contention as he continues to recover from a back issue despite being named in Brazil's squad for their upcoming World Cup qualifiers.

The electric atmosphere at Anfield fuelled Liverpool's vibrant display in midweek and Belgian goalkeeper Mignolet expects Arsenal to be greeted with another hostile reception from the Kop on Sunday.

That could mean a particularly twitchy closing few moments for Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech, given the 26 goals he has conceded against Liverpool is the joint-most the ex-Chelsea man has let in versus anyone in the league, along with Manchester United.
